Here is my problem:
Step 1: I choose the settings I want in file>preferences, and I build a custom palette of the nodes I want. Everything works fine while yed is still open.
Step 2: I close yED and immediately reopen it. It still works fine.
Step 3: I restart the computer and open yED. The preferences have been reset to the defaults, and my custom palette is gone.
What gives? Does this happen to anyone else? I had yed a few years ago and I did not have this problem. I'm on yed v3.8 and windows 7 pro.
